VIVID

The Vivid Festival has been running for a few years in Sydney. This year I got to go for the first time. And it was amazing! The Opera House was always going to be a highlight. It's always worth seeing, but this is extra special. The Vivid Festival only runs for another two days. So unless  you're actually in Sydney you'll have to wait til next year to see this. In the meantime:
























A clever French company projected 3D animations onto the Opera House. It was an ever changing cavalcade which lasted about half and hour, but was in constant play from 6pm til midnight. And the Opera House wasn't actually the most amazing light show that night!

This post is my first offering for Saturday Snapshot, a weekly meme from at home with books.
